The biennial event Arte-Polis brings together to Bandung, Indonesia, creative champions from different places around the world, to share and learn from their creative experiences on place-making. Participants come from a diverse range of disciplines, including architecture, landscape architecture and planning, business and management, cultural and development studies, design and visual arts, digital-media and information-communication technology, economics and geography, as well as the arts and humanities.

The inaugural Arte-Polis was held between 21-23 July 2006 on the ITB campus in Bandung, Indonesia. The event hailed the theme “Creative Culture and the Making of Place” through an international seminar on Urban Culture, a design workshop on Dago Creative Corridor, an exhibition featuring on Heteropia and 36 Frames, as well as a bazaar offering a Taste of Bandung. Keynote speakers of the 2006 Arte-Polis international seminar were Prof. Alexander R. CUTHBERT of the University of New South Wales, Australia, and Prof. Dorodjatun KUNTJORO-JAKTI, former Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs, Republic of Indonesia.

Building on the successes of the first four Arte-Polis in 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2012, Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB) is pleased to present Arte-Polis 5, consisting of an international conference and workshop with the theme "Reflections on Creativity: Public Engagement and the Making of Place". This biennial event is an initiative of the Architecture Program at ITB's School of Architecture, Planning and Policy Development in collaboration with other creative institutions, to be held on 8-9 August 2014 in Bandung, Indonesia's city with a long heritage of creative culture, communities and collaborations.
